Hi I'm Alex(andra) and I really like taking long exposure photos, living in the Lower Hudson Valley, adventuring, maps, cats, and traveling across the country to see my favorite bands.

So many people seem to believe that I am fearless for traveling so often on my own, but the truth is that I’m not. Just like everybody else I have my moments where I break down and question if I can really take on the world on my own.
Maybe I am brave for traveling on my own, but the way that I see it I don’t have a choice. I want to see the world and the fact that nobody is willing to give up their lives at home to do it with me, won’t stop me.
Low points and mental breakdowns in dirty bus stations are part of life on the road and you are bound to experience a handful in order to get to the positive experiences.

Sometimes you have to remind yourself that for every person who leaves you alone when you go out of your way for them and for every person who doesn’t help you, there’s going to be ten times as many people who will go out of their way to help you and make you feel at home.
So just remember to have faith in other people and most importantly, yourself.
